Exhaustion

Relief of weight, weighs too much  This fake skin,

sewn overnight  From compromise, with myself

Felt safe inside, but walls too thin  It won’t hold,

and I’ll fall through, just give it time  This fake skin

Feelings hide, cloaked in the lie  This pretty skin,

is drugs for eyes  From sore to high, my new me,

looks so benign  This big smile, lips stay sealed,

inside I rattle  Once my teeth show, this skin is fake

Sonic bliss  As quick as words, the skin peels back

As quick as that, the weight will add  This ugly skin,

scarred more within  Cracked from the pressure,

real now at last  This ugly skin, wants nothing back
